An Irishman for you to molest. Faeries love Irishmen, right?
It's not hugely deep, but there's an underlying, believable character, and it's not terribly generic. I tried to suggest the possible storyline of him being conflicted between returning or not. I just didn't feel the need to detail a generic childhood. If anything comes up, I'm good at coming up with that sort of thing on the fly and keeping it remembered.
Name: Martin Mihangel
Occupation: Former Police Officer
Abilities: Simple Combat(and pistols)-Proficient wrestler and pugilist, as well as familiarity with simple weapons. Could probably be taught to use a sword or other archaic weapon with little trouble.
Irish Ancestry-Assists in holding his mead, as well as drunken and belligerent activities. Don't they also say the fey have a connection with the irish? Perhaps he can see things others can't, or maybe faeries just like the Irish. Only time will tell.
Appearance: 5'11" and somewhat well muscled, Martin's no bear, but he might be able to outrun one. He dresses well, in slacks and a button down shirt, but his clothes show their age, faded slightly and a little bit battered. His hair is a light, muddy brown, cropped short, with short sideburns down just below his ears. He keeps his chin clean shaven, but, kidnapped, he'll be developing some stubble within a day.
Biography: Originally from upstate, he moved into the city after getting his associate's degree in criminal justice, joining the NYPD. Generally a good and fair officer, he was the scapegoat of a department scandal about a month ago, seeing him lose his job. Having trouble getting another, he may be inclined to stick it out in another world, rather than his own.
Personality: Martin's generally relaxed and cautious, preferring to ask questions first, and shoot later. Jaded with his own world, he can be grim at times, but this place may be able to catch his attention.
